Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based video games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans that we are offering support Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to choose the path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number assigned by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js app or view the active instances’ output with only several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather simple-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it’s available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for different web apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or deleted separately and you can check your applications’ output with just a few clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform once your server is up and running. As Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you have never used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you wish on our amazingly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
